Defence is a combination of effort and attitude any one who has played the game knows this.

Some players are clearly lacking the right attitude towards defence or not putting in the effort required.

Sometimes players need to just do the hard yards.

Rabbitohs call on veteran Furner to fix leaky defence

Exactly what have they said because if it was the old the board full backs the coach line AD is gone by the end of the bye week.

Demetriou to be 'given the time he needs' as Souths back coach - for now - after Mal all but turns down job

Once again the administration of the club is affecting the football of the club or as my mentor used to say to me the tail wagging the dog.

'It's a big fat no from me': Mal would pick Roos if made to choose as 'red flags' raised on any Souths deal

Mundine and Blacklock both great players but maybe they might not have suited the game plan the NSW selectors and coaches had at the time it’s not always going to be a good fit.

AJ is an awesome winger but he is not as solid as others in defence or bringing the ball back from kicks in general play as a south’s supporter I’m glad he missed SOO because I think it’s added longevity to his career at south’s

Why his latest ban could be best thing for Latrell’s career - or the beginning of the end

Could you see a Trell as a 5/8 we have seen how well he runs the ball and he can create with ball in hand as a running 5/8 he could be devastating

Why his latest ban could be best thing for Latrell’s career - or the beginning of the end

Walker should be playing NSW cup this week, being whiten into 5/8 and a centre up from NSW cup Braden Burns maybe

Rabbitohs rubbish Meninga rumour as Cook admits he's 'frustrated, angry and sad' over losing his spot

I see and to some degree agree with it, but to play devils advocate, the removal of the head coach and appointment of an interim coach for the rest of the season particularly a guy who has nothing to loose free to hold a few of these alleged senior players to account ie drop them to NSW cup for a few weeks, play them in a position thats best for the team rather than where they want to play.

Demetriou facing sack after Souths' disastrous start with Bennett, Bellamy, Burgess possible replacement options

I different coach may change culture within a club if that coach has the right conditions, if the administrators in the club have influence on the playing group and contradict a coach then ????

Fine him and move on.

AFL priorities are out of whack here

Homophobia out for weeks and weeks doing lines of illegal white powder nothing to see here.

AFL investigating as Power forward admits to homophobic slur during Bombers game

Dumbo your more likely to win a division 1 lotto prize before consistently exists in the NRL about any rule just look at the following for a quick list
1. The obstruction rule
2. Foal play
3. Sin bin or Send offs
4. Even what constitutes a knock on these days is in my view inconsistent
Just regarding the lifting tackle which was just a bone head thing to do, some of the blame needs to go to the ref how long does the player have to be standing still held by a tackler before he calls held in this instance it’s like he wanted the warriors to get an offload.

Latrell cops lengthy ban for high elbow hit on Johnson as Souths coach laments 'stupid' acts

I would have rather seen the NSW cup side play 1st grade today it was tough to watch. I don’t mind the loss when we are at least competing to a point that we are competitive

'I don't know what goes through Latrell's mind': Mitchell on report twice as Wahs dominate sorry Souths

South’s performance this season is a continuation of the second half of last season. They look slow they look clumsy they lack energy; what ever is going on behind closed doors at Redfern is not working, this is the same roster essentially that we’re top of the table going into origin last year.

Of the roster only 1/2 a dozen of them seem committed seem determined so it’s either a player attitude issue, a coaching issue or fitness and conditioning issue the talent exists but something is not quite right.

'I don't know what goes through Latrell's mind': Mitchell on report twice as Wahs dominate sorry Souths

I love the Jets and Bears, but Sydney has enough teams now any expansion must happen outside of Sydney Greater Metro Area or it will struggle for its own supporters and sponsors.

'It would be great to see the Jets in the big league': Albo throws weight behind Newtown in the NRL

I don’t like it. It doesn’t need to change some risk must exist for short kicks next thing they’ll want to change is the kicking out on the full in general play. Just leave things alone for a few years and see how it plays out

NRL holds tight on rules - but adds one tweak to promote 'unpredictability of the game'

Maybe becoming the main man might be the making of him but 1.1 million is a huge gamble on a maybe

Panthers respond after Luai taunts Cleary with 'know your worth' social media post over contract standoff

I have no skin in this, but this decision is wrong, just because a player has made a football action does not exclude them from a duty of care to other players on the field. It would be reasonable to assume that while running at pace towards an opposition player, even with the thought to smother the ball that jumping in the air could result in a collision

Maynard FREED: Pie cleared of rough conduct charge after marathon Tribunal hearing

When they fire on all cylinders the critics melt away. the problem out of this season was SOO hit, Trell got injured at Blues training, Cookie lost confidence and the rest of the squad looked lethargic for the remainder of the season. South’s have several areas of concern for me as a team; focus, discipline and effort don’t require skill or talent and don’t cost anything JD has the roster he has it’s his job to get them firing on all cylinders all year focusing on what you don’t have distracts from seeing what you do.

No doubt Reno was always going to be a massive loss to the team structure and who ever came in was going to be under pressure any player who has replaced a champion like Reno is going to be constantly compared to and rated against them. I mean with out googling it who replaced Sterlo, Langer and Stewart. In my view the broncos haven’t had a particularly good HB since Langer retired and Reno arrived they did have some great players in ather positions to cover that shortfall.

Just my view

ANALYSIS: Gamble blows up over Wighton biting allegation as Ponga propels Knights past Raiders in extra-time thriller

Tony Adam was and still is a great player and south’s pulled that trigger too early, however he took a few seasons to become that great player he didn’t dominate games from his debut Ilias will find his feet or he won’t that’s professional sport he has shown glimpses he just needs to become more consistent

2024 will be a new season as with all new seasons they are long and no one here on the ROAR or anywhere else knows how it will unfold. Armchairs don’t make anyone an expert.

Might be a couple who enjoy the argument in the Kangaroo court that is the NRL Judiciary and do it pro bono

ANALYSIS: Gamble blows up over Wighton biting allegation as Ponga propels Knights past Raiders in extra-time thriller

Time will tell, he may be a point of difference that unlocks Cody, Trell and Cookie in a way no of us armchair experts have pondered, but we will see.

ANALYSIS: Gamble blows up over Wighton biting allegation as Ponga propels Knights past Raiders in extra-time thriller

Can’t argue your logic. I put it simply; if
Gamble places his arm around Wighton’s head then he instigated it and should be at least fined for unnecessary contact, if Wighton moves his head to Gambles arm then it’s a bite and he cops what he cops from the judiciary.

Penalty to Raiders for forearm to the head. Remember the head is out of bounds.

A few years ago he interviewed a poster on the wall, it all made sense to him. Maybe he should go back to that.

KangaMaroons: Only a handful of Blues worthy of Test selection after Queensland’s Origin obliteration

Warren you are more than likely right those bone heads won’t chance an Queensland will continue to dominate. To the point they will have to bring in some sort of mercy rule to protect NSW RL.
At this point an under 15,s coaching staff might do a better job for NSW
